Isle of Wight theatre production 'had audience in stitches'

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays over the coming weeks may be tempted to check out a performance of Elsie and Norm's Macbeth during their stay on the island.

This is because the production has received a glowing review from the Isle of Wight County Press, which stated that the Shakespeare adaptation had the audience in stitches with laughter throughout.

Reviewer Jamie White added that actors Fiona Gwinnett and Peter Stockman play all the characters in the play apart from Banquo the ghost, who is represented by a puppet.

"There has to be a lot of praise for the duo who remembered a lengthy script faultlessly, when there was no room for mistakes and kept the audience informed about what was going on," he said.

Mr White explained that the wide range of regional accents on show helped to keep the crowd laughing throughout the duration of the performance.

The play is being hosted by the Shanklin Theatre on Monday nights throughout August 2010, with the final performance taking place on August 23rd.
